Elev8 Monthly is coordinated and hosted by Elev8 Coaching... proud host of Leadercast Sioux Falls.
December Leadership Topic: What's Empathy Got to Do With It?
Though the concept of empathy might contradict the modern concept of a traditional workplace - competitive, cutthroat, and focused solely on results - the reality is that for leaders to experience success, they need to not just see or hear what's going on around them, they need to relate to people. The nature of leadership is shifting, placing a greater emphasis on building and maintaining relationships.
Join us as we explore why and how leaders use empathy to move business forward. We'll learn 5 attributes of empathy and how we can develop it as a foundation of our leadership style.
What is Elev8 Monthly?
Elev8 Monthly is a no cost event, open to the public, held on the first Friday of every month from 8:00 am to 9:30 am. People from diverse industries and position levels meet to focus on a relevant leadership topic. Using leadership principles from Leadercast, participants explore topics of coaching, critical thinking, team development, strategic thinking, leadership balance, priority management, effective communication, relationship building, etc.
The 3 primary goals of these sessions are to:
1. Promote peer coaching through discussion
2. Arm participants with principles and tools they can implement between sessions
3. Create an environment where natural networking and accountability occurs
What is Leadercast?
Leadercast, a one-day leadership event broadcast to thousands of locations around the world, is the catalyst of this local event. With the 2016 theme of Architects of Tomorrow, Leadercast attendees learned about casting a compelling vision, mobilizing those around them, and leading their team toward that preferred future. The biggest obstacle in putting Leadercast action plans in to practice is reality. Elev8 Monthly was created as the monthly sustainability of Leadercast... encouraging and helping attendees 'live out' what they learned at Leadercast.
Save the date! Leadercast 2017 is Friday, May 5th where our theme will be Powered By Purpose. Tickets will be available early 2017... click here for more details about Leadercast.
